They have transplanted straw­berries, blueberries, and blackber­ries that will be ready for harvest in a few months in the Double Branches community.

“We are really excited about hav­ing the opportunity for all families in the area to be able to come out to the farm and pick some fresh de­licious fruits and vegetables,” said Brian

“Berries are healthy and deli­cious, and picking your own in­sures they are fresh. Traveling to the farm and picking your own fruits and vegetables can also be a great family outing.” Becky said.

In addition to the berries, the Tankersley’s pick-your-own opera­tion will also have fresh, in-season produce.

In conclusion they said, “We can’t think of a better way for families to experience a day on the farm than to come out and see the berries and produce growing on the plants and taking some home to enjoy.”
